The RAM speed is showing as 0 MHz on my rig with two different speeds (and sizes) of Kingston HyperX Fury RAM. But when I install both sets of RAM (2x4 and 2x8) there is a correct reporting of the lower speed of the two. See my profile with the test named "both old and new ram". Could this reporting error be fixed?

    Which version of Geekbench are you using?

    Hi John!
    I'm using the latest MacOS version off the App Store, 4.3.2.

    Kind a same problem I am facing, Mac OS showing my RAM frequency 2666 MHZ but Geekbench is showing only 1333 MHz.

    I am using iMac 2019.

    What is wrong with Geekbench?

    Last time I checked the MacOS/Linux versions of GB don't always properly detect memory speeds in these OSes.
